MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers only got three hits Sunday in losing to the New York Mets, 2-1 at Miller Park. Jeremy Hefner struck out eight Brewers in seven innings, while giving up just two hits. Tom Gorzelanny took the hard-luck loss as a late replacement for Wily Peralta, who has a bad hamstring. Gorzelanny struck out eight in six frames and gave up two unearned runs – both after throwing errors by Juan Francisco on a pair of slow rollers to third base. Josh Satin doubled home the eventual winning run in the sixth inning. Satin went 3 for 4 and scored once for the Mets, who took 2 of 3 from the Crew. Jonathan Lucroy homered in his second straight game. He was the only Milwaukee player to touch third base. Norichika Aoki and Sean Halton had the only other Brewer hits, both infield singles. Hefner won his third straight decision, and is now 4-6. Bobby Parnell earned a four-out save, his 15th. Gorzelanny’s loss dropped him to 1-2. The Brewers are still entrenched in last in the National League Central but they dropped their dubious distinction of having the biggest deficit in the six Major League divisions. Milwaukee is 18 games behind first-place Pittsburgh and Saint Louis, while Houston is now 20 back in the A-L West. The Brewers open a home series against Cincinnati tonight. Right-hander Kyle Lohse faces Cincy’s Homer Bailey, who threw a no-hitter his last time out. Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 6:35.
